KRISHI FILMS-2018 will showcase films based on Revolution in Agriculture in the world.
The advent of change and the fast development of modern technology as well as the changes in attitudes, cultures, nature of the soil & weather and lifestyles, the farmer needs to open himself up to new visions and perspectives, will be the theme of KRISHI FILMS-2018.
Ranging in any length, film entries will present local farming methods, revolution in Agriculture, advise on dietary choices, show stunning landscapes endangered by a warming climate, and document the lives of farmers in the World.
It will be an International event that will bring the best films on Agriculture and the idea is to create an atmosphere for film makers, scientists, students and academicians to meet and exchange thoughts.
Revolution in Agriculture may sound a small word but it contains centuries in it. It is older than the civilization and sometimes civilization becomes synonym to the agriculture. If we call civilization the body then the agriculture will be its soul. In that sense the festival covers a vast range of subjects when we say “Films on Revolution in Agriculture”. The idea is to understand Agriculture of other parts of the world and to showcase Revolution in Indian Agriculture to the world community.
